Transfer Rumour Reliability Score: Ross Barkley to Chelsea or Tottenham in January

It’s been what, a couple of months since the closing of transfer window? The games are coming thick and fast (7 in 21 days turned out to be a bit too much!) but thanks to the International break, we are back to the old transfer stories.

While it is already known that Chelsea was interested in Ross Barkley and the Englishman almost signed for the Blues on the deadline day, before he chickened out of the medicals for reasons unknown.

Although, that hasn’t stopped the tabloid from linking him to us again for the January 2018 window with ESPN reporting this:

“Ross Barkley backed out of a late move in the summer to Chelsea in favour of focusing on his rehabilitation from injury, but an Everton exit in January is still all but certain, reports the Mirror.

“The England international was reportedly keen on a move to Tottenham, who will come in again for him once the window opens. Chelsea’s interest will likely still stand, too.

“The asking price will likely be significantly less than the £35 million the Blues agreed to with the Toffees late in the window, because the 23-year-old could leave Goodison Park on a free transfer in just a matter of months after the January window opens.”


While we already know of Chelsea’s interest in Ross Barkley, the above story of the Englishman leaving the Goodison Park, come this January, is very reliable.

Ross has already made it known that he’s not interested in a contract extension at Everton and it seems like it will be a 2 way battle between Tottenham and Chelsea for the signature of the young English Star.

Do you want to see Ross Barkley at Stamford Bridge or do you think he’s too overrated to put on a Blue Shirt?
